Reorganising the “Front of Shop”

Posted by Lizzie Neville on September 21, 2013 0 Comments
With nearly all of this year’s new stock in it has been necessary to have a bit of a reorganisation in the front of the Stealth Fireworks shop.  Firstly, to fit everything in all the new products, (we have over 250 different lines available this year), and secondly to showcase our products...

How to compete with the Supermarkets?

Posted by Lizzie Neville on September 20, 2013 0 Comments
One of the problems for us as a small independent firework retailer is how to get our Customers to bypass the fireworks in Asda, Tesco etc. and walk across the road to our firework shop.  Although we are convinced we offer better products, better service and a specialist knowledge, if...

Ready …. Steady …. Fire

Posted by Mark Neville on September 19, 2013 0 Comments
Ever since I was little, half the fun of fireworks came before the night itself.  My twice weekly trips to the end of my road where I inspected what fireworks were in the display cabinet at the corner shop provided great excitement.  I was allowed to pick the fireworks up,...

The Legendary King

For those with a historical interest this could well be Henry VIII, Richard the Lionheart or even King Arthur with his knights but in more recent times, (the last 5 years to be precise), the only true legendary King for me has been The King Rocket from Brothers. Over the...

Oh Brother! (Pyrotechnics that is)

 Another great day in the life of a firework fanatic!  Got my Brothers Fireworks delivery this afternoon and now have in stock one of the best new barrages for 2013, namely, Sapphire Supercharge.  When I first saw the video I thought, not bad, probably as good as Dark Angel, which...

Oh What A Night!

I have now calmed down from Saturday’s high and pleased to advise that everything went really well.  Despite some delays due to minor technical difficulties, (and the football on the TV), the videos are now available. There were lots of positives from the products we fired, particularly those I was...

The Set-Up and the Stake Out

Posted by Mark Neville on September 15, 2013 0 Comments
Well done AccuWeather, a perfect night and the only forecaster to predict dry and clear weather just two days ago.   I finished my preparation early with about thirty minutes before I fired last night’s mini display of products that we either need film for the website or dummies for the...

Making Firework Dummies

Posted by Mark Neville on September 13, 2013 0 Comments
Most suppliers will provide a ‘dummy’ of each of their live fireworks that can then be prominently displayed in a retail shop with the words ‘dummy for display purposes only’.  Current legislation only allows for a very small weight of Nett Explosive Quantity, (NEC), to be held ‘in front of...

Excited Every Year since Aged 5

Posted by Mark Neville on September 12, 2013 0 Comments
I’m getting that ‘tingly’ feeling again because everything is looking good for firing some early Pyro this Saturday.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a clear night sky and since AccuWeather says it’s going to be dry that’s good enough for me, so I’m ignoring Metcheck, UKWeather and the BBC...

Transformers or Star Wars

Posted by Mark Neville on September 11, 2013 0 Comments
If you like Transformers and you think Megan Fox is ‘hot’….. just wait until you see my Transformer Rocket from Golden Dragon.  More powerful than a Decepticon and at least as spectacular as an Autobot I’ve named mine Optimus Prime.  With three different effects to choose from what will you...
